The best thing about writing is the fact that we can make the impossible possible.
For example, I was watching Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat the other day with my girl kidlet. She's sort of a freak for anything dancing and singing related. And I realized that I am too. I was all belting out these songs and stuff, and I got a little teary.
Sheesh. Now I'm crying at musicals!
Anyway, this is why. I would love to be on stage, singing and dancing and wearing all that stage makeup. Maybe. But I never will -- and my complete lack of dancing ability and my tone deafness are only two reasons why.
Becoming a Broadway performer is an impossibility.
But through writing, I can do anything!
Anything that doesn't require research, that is. *wink* (Hey, I'm nothing if not realistic.)
What about you guys? What can you do while writing that you would/could never do in real life?
